Mining and Bio-diversity Conservation Plan

Mining has played a key role both in the state economy and the development. Iron ore management, bauxite, high magnesia limestone and clay are the chief minerals of economic importance in India. Mining and conservation of natural ecosystem both are important.

 

Mining causes negative impacts to eco system due to several disruptive activities. The likely disruptive activities included road construction, blasting, excavation for tunnels quarrying, dumping of excavated materials and human population pressure in land and bio logical resources such as forest resources.

 

Thus Mining being inevitable the necessity of carefully planned conservation effort to compensate the ecological disturbance created by it.

 

Conservation is the sustainable use of natural resources so that it is preserved for future generation as well. Natural resource conservation involves proper management of natural wealth, places that sustain these resources.

 

Biodiversity conservation as one of the important activities will be presented for restoration planning model where the presence or absence of topsoil conserved on the site has to be   considered as practical issue for consideration in ecological restoration and sustainability in the mining areas.

 

It is not just the conservation of Biodiversity but many other aspects of the ecosystem level of organization with sound ecological knowledge will heuristic power and applicability to site-specific ecological sustainability effects. In view of above foreseen disturbance and degradation of natural ecosystems a bio diversity conservation and management plan has been proposed for the project.
